There are myriad ways to predict the outcome of the presidential election, but perhaps none as telling as Busken Bakery's Presidential Cookie Poll, which has accurately predicted the winning president since 1984, according to their website

The Cincinnati-based bakery's poll kicked off on Sept. 12 and one orange-complected candidate is taking the lead — Trump: 4,491; Biden 3,420 as of today (Oct. 8).

The bakery's "polling places," aka locations that sell the presidential cookies, are scattered throughout town, including United Dairy Farmers, both Jungle Jim's, IGA in Dillonvale, Remke in Crescent Springs and their three Busken Bakery locations — as well as online. 

The 8-packs are available in Republican Party packs, Democratic Party packs and Cookie Party packs, all priced at $22. 

According to Busken's Facebook page, their bakery locations are updated daily, and their other locations are updated weekly. 

Cookies are available individually in-store or in 8-packs online. 

Make your vote heard. At cookie "polling locations" and, most importantly, at the actual polls
